All members of the campus community are required to take a one-time COVID-19 test before returning to campus in January. Below are the 4 steps employees will need to take to fully complete the testing requirement if you plan to test on campus.

On the day of your test:

⇒ Step 3 Screenshot your COVID-19 test result (from the NAVICA App)
⇒ Step 4 Upload the image to COVIDNavigator 

Step 1: SCHEDULE YOUR TEST AT CAREATC

The on-campus site is located at 600 S. Michigan Ave. To schedule a COVID-19 test or to receive the booster vaccine, please call 844-766-3775 or make the appointment online via ColumbiaQ. For testing hours, visit our COVID-19 Testing website.

You will need to download this app to receive your COVID-19 test results. You can download Abbott's NAVICA app from the App Store or Google Play by searching NAVICA or scanning the QR code below.

If you do not have a smartphone, instructions on what to do will be available at the Campus Testing Facility at 600 S. Michigan Ave.

Step 3: SCREENSHOT YOUR TEST RESULT (FROM THE NAVICA APP)

Once your test result is available, take a screenshot it. If you do not know how to take a screenshot, YouTube can help you find instructions for your specific device.

Step 4: UPLOAD THE SCREENSHOT IMAGE OF YOUR NEGATIVE TEST RESULTS TO THE COVID NAVIGATOR APP 

To facilitate the college’s ability to manage employee testing requirements and vaccination status, Human Resources has partnered with MediKeeper to implement a COVIDNavigator app. The app allows employees to confidentially upload and provide the college with verification of their testing and vaccination status.

Testing Off-Campus

If you plan to test at an off-campus / third-party testing site: Third-party COVID-19 tests must reflect a negative result within 3-days prior to entering campus for the first time after winter break. Using steps 3 and 4 above, employees can upload a screenshot of their test result to COVIDNavigator.

IF YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19: Those with positive test results need to stay off-campus and notify the college’s contact tracing team. Employees should inform securitycommand@colum.edu and their supervisor.

The college’s contact tracing team will advise individuals who test positive to quarantine as per the CDC’s newly recommended isolation and/or quarantine guidelines.
